Douglas Wolf raises crops and livestock near Lancaster.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection welcomed Douglas Wolf as the newest member of DATCP's citizen board.

"It's an honor to have been appointed to serve on such a prestigious board," Wolf said. "I'm looking forward to participating and learning about the issues facing our state's agriculture industry and how the DATCP board can help keep Wisconsin growing."

Wolf has been farming in Lancaster  for 38 years and is a partner, along with his wife Kris and son Shannon in Wolf L & G Farms LLC. The farm is a diversified hog, cattle and crop farm with a farrow to finish hog operation of 1,200 sows, 300 beef cows and calves and 1,800 acres of cropland.

Doug Wolf replaces Richard Cates who stepped down from the DATCP Board in December.

In addition to farming, Wolf is a past president of the National Pork Producers Council, served on the Wisconsin Pork Association Board and has been an agricultural industries instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

"Doug's leadership in dealing with complicated and difficult issues on the national level will serve him well as a DATCP Board member," said Secretary Ben Brancel. "His experience will guide him through the multiple issues and complex challenges that come before the board."

Wolf has a Bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from UW-Platteville and a Master's degree in meat and animal science from UW-Madison.

Wolf will fill the seat left open by Richard Cates who stepped down from the DATCP Board in December.
